Regular City Council Meeting




City Council and Planning Commission Meetings


Due to the unprecedented public health threats posed by COVID-19 and the resultant need for social distancing, changes  to the City Council and Planning Commission meeting format are required.  Executive  Order N-25-20  and N-29-20 from  Governor Gavin Newsom  allow  for telephonic  City  meetings  of the City  Council and Planning Commission and  waives in-person accessibility for  those meetings,  provided  that there are  other means  for the  public to  participate.   Therefore, and  effective  immediately, and  continuing  only  during   the period in which state or local public health officials have imposed or recommended social distancing measures, the Rio Dell City Council will only be viewable via livestreaming through our partners at Access Humboldt via their YouTube channel, Suddenlink channels on Cable TV, or directly through Zoom.
